Parragon Book review


We received two beautiful books from Parragon Books to read; Sunshine and Snowballs and Goodnight Little One. For Sydney this was great timing as he as only just recently began to really enjoy bedtime stories. He is very particular about which books he likes and he certainly has some firm favourites. Whether it is a stall to bedtime or whether he enjoys books he usually has three stories before he goes to sleep.

It was great to receive some new reading material not only for Sydney but for mummy and daddy as well.

Sunshine and Snowballs by Margaret Wise Brown

“From best-selling children’s author Margaret Wise Brown, comes a beautiful rhyming story of two children’s exploration of the seasons of a year. Explore the magical colours, sounds and sights of our natural world in spring, summer, autumn and winter through the eyes of a young boy and girl, brought to life with the stunning artwork of illustrator Charlotte Cooke.” (Parragon books)

Sydney instantly took to this book. The simple yet intriguing rhyming tells a beautiful story through the seasons and for Sydney it certainly grabbed his attention. When reading it he loves to look at the pictures. He is a big lover of nature and it’s elements, so to read about things that are real adds a magical, yet down to earth warming  feeling. Sydney loves creatures and there are plenty of them in this book!

Goodnight Little One by Margaret Wise Brown

“This beautifully illustrated magical story from best-selling author Margaret Wise Brown – creator of the children’s classics ‘Goodnight Moon’ and ‘Runaway Bunny’ – will enchant children and parents alike; it’s a perfect bedtime story for your little one.” (Parragon Books)

For some reason this book took a little longer for Sydney to warm to. It is now however a book  that he loves, especially when he is really sleepy. The illustrations are delicate and have a hazy sleepy feel.  This book  uses repetition and Sydney likes to finish each page off as it ends with…”close your eyes”  he finds it comforting and it makes him smile when he repeats the little line.bed

Here at Baby -A we found that these books are very appealing to Sydney and they are a pleasure to read.

Thank you Parragon Books for letting us sample your beautiful books;
